Australia Smart Cities - Case Studies
While no city can claim to be the leader in the smart city movement there are thousands of examples in the leading cities around the world, and increasingly in Australia also, that have very impressive scores on the board. The fact that most leading cities are now finally developing strategic smart city plans or at least economically viable smart city projects indicates that this is not just another blue sky story, but a solid business reality.
There is now also more federal and state government focus on the need for cities to become smarter in order to improve lifestyle, drive job growth (especially in new emerging small businesses) and, equally important as is the case in all digital transformation processes to take unnecessary costs out of the city economy. The big question, however, is who is going to fund these city transformations.
This report provides an overview of the key smart city developments around Australia. Most are city-driven but we also see a few case studies driven by state governments. Some are project-driven and the first ones are now arriving at a more strategic stage.
